Prednisolone 5 mg Tablets Indications
 
For steroid therapy, as an aid in the treatment of arthritis, asthma, skin disorders, allergic dermatoses and other inflammatory conditions in dogs and cats.
 
Dosage and Administration
 
Prednisolone 5 mg tablets are for oral administration. The dosage, as with other corticosteroids, should be individualized according to the severity of the conditions, anticipated duration of therapy and the patient's threshold or tolerance for steroid excess. For chronic conditions, the lowest dose producing adequate relief should be the one employed. As a guideline,
 
Dogs: 0.5-1.0 mg/kg
Cats: 1-2 mg/kg
 
Doses should be given as single or divided doses initially and then tapered to every 48 hours.
 
Prednisolone 5 mg Tablets Caution
 
Prednisolone 5 mg tablets contain a potent steroid and are to be used under the direct supervision of a veterinarian. All precautions and contraindications for adrenocortical hormones must be observed. Warning signs of cortisone overdosage may not be present. In certain cases, where large doses are required, the patient must be closely observed for side effects such as polyuria and polydipsia. When side effects occur, it may be necessary to reduce the dosage or discontinue therapy. Continuous large doses of Prednisolone 5 mg tablets may result in some depression of adrenocortical function and may produce adrenal atrophy. If long-term therapy is to be terminated, gradual withdrawal is recommended. The possible action of Prednisolone 5 mg tablets in delaying healing should also be considered.
 
As with all glucocorticoids, Prednisolone 5 mg tablets may mask the signs of infection or cause the onset of latent infection. For these reasons, it may be advisable to institute proper antibacterial therapy together with Prednisolone 5 mg tablets.
 
Warning

Can a man use the product for inflammation?
Mike S on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Technically yes, but humans typically take prednisone. Cats take prednisolone because their livers have difficulty processing prednisone into the derivative prednisolone. But oral steroids aren't to be used lightly, and the dosage should be determined by a doctor for the particular individual and medical situation. And steroids have side effects, sometimes quite serious ones, especially if one stops taking a steroid without weaning the dose down before stopping.
Can be use for cats?

BEST ANSWER: I was told by my vet specialist that this drug in pill form is safe for cats. We’ve given this exact product to our 8 year old cat, twice every day, for about 2 months now with no issue.
